Drop Legs - Lizzy     Reggae/Dub, Hip Hop, Ska, Rock 14/03/2017

From Brisbane, Shanon Watkins is a stocky, tattooed, red-haired, left-handed bloke; not quite the picture that first comes to mind when you think singer-songwriter. But sing and song-write he does.
“[Sitting back and relaxing in the sun] inspired me to write about being happy with what you have and who you are. Life is the journey and whatever happened, right or wrong you are who you are because of what you did to get there”.

Zennith - Poet A Rhymer     Hip Hop, Reggae, Rap 04/11/2016

Embracing their hip-hop reggae roots, Kuranda’s dynamic family-founded outfit Zennith are back – six years after their last release. 'Poet A Rhymer' is the sound the band always set out to create, a dance-hall anthem with beat-laden rap and a rhythmic undertone, interwoven with some mean guitar licks.

8Foot Felix - Mad Isle     Reggae/Dub, Ska, Psychedelic, World 30/07/2016
8Foot Felix is a raucous ball of sea-­soaked ska, funk, gypsy, hip­hop and blues. They draw their audiences into their immersive theatrical world and then set the dancefloor on fire.
Mad Isle has an irresistible island bounce to it that belies its searching lyrics. "The party's getting started..." but a shark-infested sea separates our singer from the action. A tribal rumble takes over from the skank as the absurdity mounts bringing the song to a chaotic climax.
